Nothing is more precious to Ryan Chase than five-year-old Maggie. She's the reason the widower moved to Halo Island in the first place—to get away from his hectic, work-all-hours job and spend more time with her. Ryan will do anything to make sure Maggie is protected from hurt, which means no attachments to anyone who comes into their lives and plans to leave. Like Tina Morrell. As soon as the holidays are over, she's going back to Seattle to her busy job and hopefully a promotion. Tina's career is the most important thing in her life…until she meets the adorable Maggie and her hot father. But Ryan won't let Tina get close, even though his daughter seems to be bringing them together. Will the miracle of Christmas open his heart to love?
